Choose Your Toppings


Thank you for your interest in writing for Thought Pizza! Although we cannot guarantee that every submission we receive will be published, every piece will be read and we will respond to each one as quickly as possible. Please be patient with us as we are a small team, but we strive to respond promptly. Following the guidelines below will help to ensure that we are able to efficiently read submissions and get back to you in a timely fashion.

Submission Guidelines: 
  1. Please make sure that your submission fits into at least one of the categories listed at the top of the page. We're actively seeking material in the following subject areas: Games & Sports, World News, and The Real World. While you may submit items in any category, submissions in these subject areas are likely to be published sooner. 
  2. Be respectful and open-minded in your writing. We would like this site to represent all viewpoints, so take into consideration every side of an issue when writing. We ask that you not use offensive or vulgar language unless it is paramount to your work. 
  3. We accept regular contributors in writing weekly or monthly features. If you would like to be considered for a recurring segment, please submit an item that would be representative of the feature you would like to write and note your interest in the beginning of your e-mail. 
  4. Contributors will not be paid for published work. We look forward to the growth of Thought Pizza and the opportunity to compensate contributors in the future, but as of now, writing for Thought Pizza is simply a great way to showcase your work. 
  5. Posts should be whatever length you feel the topic deserves. Keep in mind that longer posts will take longer for us to read, so please be patient. 
  6. When submitting photos along with posts, feel free to use photos you've taken yourself. You may also use photos found on sites like Flickr's Creative Commons, but link back to the original source. Please don't steal photos. 
  7. You may submit posts that have appeared elsewhere online as long as it doesn't conflict with the other blog or website's terms of use. We don't encourage you to submit these posts often and we will be less likely to accept posts that aren't original content for our site. 
Format Guidelines: 
  1. Submit text pieces in a word document with either a .doc or .docx extension. 
  2. Images should be attached separately with .jpeg extensions. 
  3. The subject of your e-mail should clearly state "Submission" and the category that your piece fits into. For example, "Submission: Technology." 
  4. Include a short bio (written in the third person) of 2-3 sentences at the end of your submission. You may also include up to three links to appear with your bio, such as a link to your facebook, twitter, tumblr, or blog. 
  5. Multiple submissions should be submitted in separate e-mails. 

All submissions should be sent to
